A single-vehicle crash on Highway 44 has killed a 15-year-old Selkirk boy.
RCMP say at about 3 a.m. on Friday, a vehicle carrying three males was heading westbound on the highway when it lost control and rolled. The crash happened just west of the Lockport Bridge.
The 15-year-old was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced deceased. The 19-year-old male driver and another male passenger suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Alcohol and speed are considered contributing factors, according to police.
The victim’s name isn’t being released.
